As the primary spokesperson for London Cares, the Executive Director is responsible for working collaboratively with partners and funders, and represents the organization at municipal tables and all levels of government. The Executive Director maintains positive relationships with community partners and ensures London Cares is an active member of the community helping advance community goals and objectives.
